Frankfort Avenue Clock Missing. (Branden Klayko / Broken Sidewalk)
(Branden Klayko / Broken Sidewalk)

The familiar clock mounted on the door of Hunter’s Upstairs Clock Repair just off Frankfort Avenue in Clifton has gone missing. Alright, so the clock (and the sign above the door) has been absent for quite some time, but we were hoping it casually wandered off for an evening walk, not to stop and have a nap on those CSX tracks across the street. Quirky unexpected elements like a grandfather clock glued to a door are what really Keeps Louisville Weird, so we hope there is a good reason for the missing clock (and we hope it returns soon!). So, anyone know the story behind Tiny Ben?
